Do you donate to charity and other things - is that what is driving the refund? Because they can't predict (nor will they) that.
I have on and off, but even in the years where I didn't donate, I still got a refund, just not quite as much.
You do give a good point, and I figured going to my HR and Finance folks would be the best course of action, but thought I'd ask in case anyone had any experience. Thanks!
